5 Common Misconceptions about Carpet Cleaning

Posted By Tubro Carpet Cleaning || 5-Dec-2014

When it comes to carpet cleaning, there are several misconceptions that people have about it that affects the way they care for their carpets. Here are 5 misconceptions that you should consider when looking into getting your carpets cleaned:

1. Wait Until Carpet “Needs” It

One of the biggest misconceptions about carpet cleaning is that you don’t need to do it until your carpet starts to look dirty. The truth of the matter is, you should be doing it regularly enough that your carpet doesn’t get to this point.

2. Only Removes Dirt

Dirt wears down the fibers in your carpet, so you need to remove it on a regular basis. Vacuums can help, but professional cleaners can get the dirt and debris your vacuum can’t reach. The special equipment can also remove pollens, allergens, bacteria, chemicals, pesticides, fungus, and other particles.

3. Only One Cleaning Method

People typically associated steam cleaning or the hot water extraction method with professional cleaners, but there are several methods, such as dry foam, dry-chemical, and dry-compound. Professionals can help determine the right method for your carpet.

4. Choose Company Based on Price

Don’t just choose the cheapest price; look for the best value! We also suggest choosing a company with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certificate (IICRC), showing that they have the experience to pass the examinations needed to obtain it.

5. Use Any Specialty Products

You can’t just pick up a carpet cleaning product and expect it to do the job. You need to choose one with the right pH level for your carpet. Then, you need to dilute it properly and use it according to the directions. Professionals can help you choose a product that will keep it in good condition and won’t damage your carpet in the process. Contact Tubro Carpet Cleaning with any other carpet cleaning questions you may have. We’re here to offer advice and help you get your carpets clean and keep them that way.
